    The play action pass thing has been bothering me since JG got here. It was even more sickening watching Brees use it early and often against our defense, while sitting in a clean pocket picking us apart. They ran the heck of the ball in the first quarter and still ZERO play action pass attempts.

    Is Romo the only QB in the league that has to have 5 All Pro's on the offensive line to throw the ball down field? Damn you got two competent tackles, a rookie playing well at C, how much more help does our 100 million dollar QB need?

    The article mentions what I've been posting here about Romo and play action passing. He is so effective using it but JG doesn't utilise it. Why? I have no idea but to to think JG is too stubborn or too stupid.

    And the article mentions the same stat I've posted before. You don't need a good running game for the play action to be effective

    I agree. I mentioned in another thread that I think Romo and/or Garrett are the main problem(s) with this offense. I think we have a lot of playmakers at the skill positions and our offensive line is improved. I don't think Romo is a bad QB and I've always been a Romo supporter, but I think he's a bad QB this season. I don't care what kinda stats people throw at me. I've been watching Romo for years. He doesn't look the same this year. His rating probably makes him look better than he really has been because he's barely thrown any interceptions this year. Anyway, you said it perfectly, these coaches have neutered Romo and he's afraid to throw the ball to Dez. Romo better get his head right before it's too late, and these coaches better do a better job of maximizing our talent or they better get outta town.

    I agree. Our offensive line is still a problem but it's much better than last year and there are lots of good offenses with sloppy O-lines. We added T. Williams, Murray is back, Dez has a year more experience, Free is improved, Tyron has a year more experience, The Beard is a godsend, and we had Brian Waters playing at a high level (and the offense was still playing poorly). Everything has gotten better on offense personnel-wise, but the offense looks much worse than in years past. The only two explanations I can come up with are Romo and Garrett/Callahan.

    Holy crow, you may be on to something! So those 19 interceptions last year were bad?

    I'd take a few more interceptions over shell-shocked Romo we've seen this year.

    Add that to the list as to why Dez is a top WR in this league.

    2006 line was as bad as any line Romo had play under yet we threw deep. More JG got hold of the offense, the things Romo used to great at disappeared from it.

    Well is that really the case?

    Seems detroit and the Viks handled up on Romo pretty well. And the Saints.

    My contention is they need to protect long enough for longer routes to develop.

    Is that Romo? He may have a hand in it.

    Is that the line?

    That could be as well. I don't believe it is one thing.

    I also think the defense, or lack thereof has a hand in the decisions Romo is making now. Whatever combination it is, it needs to be fixed because other teams are doubling Dez and forcing Dallas to win with a rookie and a 1st year guy and Witten.

    And this is heresy, but has Witten lost a little bit?

    Completely irrelevant to the topic thread. But I miss Terry Glenn. So much.

    Ah I am getting emotional.

    He was looking trash even when the oline was playing good. Romo and Garrett are clowns.

    Whoa! Why was I thinking you were a big supporter of Garrett? I guess I was thinking of someone else!?!? Or have you recently thrown in the towel as it pertains to JG?

    This is actually an interesting article -- well worth the read.

    Is anybody else as shocked as I am that is from Bleacher Report?

    I was shocked until I read the byline. Jonathan Bales has been writing about the Cowboys for a while at his site, DC Times. Lots of statistical content. He used to post here when that site was starting up.
